Rondo Won't Be 100 Percent For Game 1; Wallace Limited At Practice

New, 1 comment

Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo says he doesn't anticipate being 100 percent healthy (back spasms) for Game 1 against the Lakers:

"I'm about 67 percent today," Rondo joked, before the Celtics practiced at UCLA's Pauley Pavilion. "I won't be a 100 percent by Thursday, but I'll be like 94.7.

"Right now, nobody in the Finals right now is 100 percent. If you find someone let me know who is, let me know. You can ask the Lakers too. One of our rookies might be 100 percent."

Rasheed Wallace also has been suffering from back spasms. Wallace's availability for Game 1 is uncertain:

Wallace developed back spasms during Game 5 against Orlando, then departed in the fourth quarter of Game 6 when the symptoms worsened. Rivers held the reserve big man out of contact drills Monday and remains concerned about his availability moving forward.

Marquis Daniels is definitely out for Game 1.
